President Trump said he’s “so angry” at Republicans for failing to investigate and prosecute Joe Biden, his son Hunter Biden, and former FBI director James Comey for their alleged corruption and crimes.
“Does anything happen? Nothing happens!” Trump told workers in Dayton, Ohio. “I’m so angry at Republicans. I am. I’m so angry.”
President Trump said Biden and former president Barack Obama weaponized Comey’s FBI to illegally spy on his 2016 campaign.
“It’s treason,” Trump said. “Comey and all the sleazebags, they spied on my campaign and we caught them. Let’s now see what happens.”
Despite his frustration, President Trump suggested there’s hope that justice will be meted out at some point.
Trump noted that there are several investigations underway, including a Senate probe of Hunter and Joe Biden’s business dealings with Ukraine.
“A lot of things are happening,” Trump said.
The investigations have been underway for some time, but the president said he’s not directly involved and will stay out of the Justice Department’s inquiries.
“I stay out of it,” Trump said. “I’m trying like hell to stay out of it. But it’s a disgrace that it’s taken so long.”
According to court documents filed in December, Hunter Biden is the subject of multiple criminal investigations for “fraud, money-laundering, and a counterfeiting scheme.” The documents do not state which agencies are investigating Hunter.
The documents allege that Biden and several business associates “established bank and financial accounts with Morgan Stanley…for Burisma Holdings Limited … for the money-laundering scheme.”
The alleged “money-laundering” accounts contained an average of $6.8 million between March 2014 and December 2015. During that time, Hunter was on the board of directors of Burisma, an energy company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch.
While he was vice president, Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees if Ukraine didn’t fire its top prosecutor, who was investigating the owner of Burisma Holdings (see video below).
Hunter’s Ukraine dealings — and his father’s alleged attempts to enrich his son using his influence as vice president — has come under fire.
Even anti-Trumpers like comedian Bill Maher called out the mainstream media, saying if Donald Trump Jr. had the same questionable ties to a Ukrainian oligarch the way Joe’s son Hunter does, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow would be hyperventilating about it nonstop.
“This kid was paid $600,000 [a year] because his name is Biden by a gas company in Ukraine, this super-corrupt country that just had a revolution to get rid of corruption,” Maher said. “It just looks bad.”
Bill Maher — a vocal Trump-hater — joked that this corrupt pay-for-play scandal is something Don Jr. would be involved in, but he wasn’t.
“It does sound like something Don Jr. would do,” Maher said. “And if Don Jr. did it, it would be all Rachel Maddow would be talking about!”
